BEDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Two teens were killed Wednesday when they were struck by a pickup truck while walking in Bedford Township.
Authorities said a Ford F-150 was traveling east on Sterns, east of Hidden Valley Drive, about 12:34 p.m. when it drove across the shoulder and onto the easement, hitting the victims. Authorities believe the teens, 13 and 16, were walking east on the lawn area of a private residence when they were hit.
The victims were pronounced dead at ProMedica Toledo Hospital.
The victims were identified as siblings Justin T. Haun, age 13 of Lambertville, Michigan and Alyssa M. Haun, age 16 of Hinckley, Ohio.
The driver, Raymond E. Reyome Jr, a 49-year-old Erie man, was wearing a seat belt and was not injured. Two passengers, a 32-year-old Toledo woman and a man, immediately fled the scene when the truck stopped, police said.
